Hunting two species
#1
Tomorrow because of less traffic (me by myself) on my club land, I️ am thinking of stalking along some bottoms along cutovers looking for deer in the afternoon after a ground blind sit in the AM. Mix it up and get in the woods a little bit.

May I️ carry my 22LR slung on my back for squirrels along with me while carrying my Muzzleloader for deer?

Thank you!

just my 2 cents: Your going to see squirrels, and plenty of them - is it worth bogeying up the woods shooting a squirrel, when the king of the woods is out and about, and HIS guard is down seeking for love. Squirrel season is a long season -

Due to a commitment I️ can’t shoot a deer after around 3 Pm tomorrow. So I️ was thinking about packing up my ground blind and stalking a bottom after lunch time. I would hate to start that stalk with a squirrel rifle only and the buck of a lifetime jumps out of the bushes.

Get a nice 12 gauge and load up with slugs for that deer and shot for the squirrels!  

Make the shot non-toxic and you could even bring your waterfowl permits!

Is there such a thing as a non-toxic slug?  Only ask because the law for waterfowl reads that you may not have any lead ammo on your person I think.  Would a Tungsten slug take down a deer?

Yes there are non-toxic slugs. There are about 5 different copper slugs out right now...market will shift and start to offer more in the next year or two

You can thank Commiefornia for that.

If it is in season I will hunt it.
